keep it simple !!

stamps: hunkydory forever stamps for the gents, teeny tiny sentiments from stampin up!
inks: archival ink pad (jet black), tim holtz distress ink pads (shabby shutters, peacock feathers & black soot)
punches: scallop border punch, word window, modern label all from stampin up!
cardstock: craftwork cards digi cardstock & 4x6 card blank
I used distress inks to create a multi-coloured base, which I stamped the design over. following the sketch, i then punched out the scalloped border. I used a further punch to cut the shapes out for the simple sentiment. I always struggle with mens cards but I think this simple approach works quite well.
